    Delta seats

    I will be on that same flight in August. 41J in main cabin is what you are thinking about…it has no seat in front of it giving me more leg room than first class and is $1000 less than comfort+

    Cross wildebeest off the list?

    I disagree. I took my Black one with a 7 MM just fine. Shot placement is everything. Looking at your list I would do a Black Wildebeest (poor man’s buffalo) easily over a blesBok

    Hearing Protection for Hunting

    I have OTTO and they are magic! They can either act like true ear plugs with no noise first level, normal sound second level and amplified like a hearing aid third level…all three levels completely cut out blast noise when gun fired. Love them as I’m sure you will love your Tetra’s Eric!

    Big bore recoil

    Great questions. Big bores with the exception of my 275 Rigby are all I shoot. The following are the keys to manage recoil: 1. Having the right LOP that fits you. 2. Making sure the weight fits the caliber...example...having a 470 that weighs 9.3 pounds will kick you to death given the weight...

    I completely agree. I have found from my experience there is so much “art” in how each company labels grades of wood. I bought a grade 8 stock blank for my Rigby.
